Units Scale

The cookies

  • 1 cup Rolled oats
  • 1 cup Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Butter (Softened )
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup White Sugar
  • 1 Egg

The Icing

  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 TBS Water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F
  2. Pour the rolled oats into a food processor and pulse until the oats are ground into a coarse flour. Add the gluten free flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and pulse to combine,
  3. In a stand mixer cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Once combined mix in the egg until fully incorporated.
  4. With the stand mixer on low slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix until it forms a dough.
  5. Spoon out a large marble sized amount of dough, roll into a ball and squish into a dish for the best shaped cookies. Evenly space them on a baking stone (not too close or they will melt into each other) and place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the tops are evenly cracked on top. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes to firm up before moving to a cooling rack.
  7. Meanwhile, whisk together the powered sugar and water and set aside.
  8. Once the cookies are completely cooled they can be iced by lightly dipping the top of the cookie in the icing and laying back down on the cooling rack. The farther you dip the cookie the more icing will gather on the top. *see notes*


The amount of icing in this recipe is for lightly icing 2 dozen small cookies. If you make your cookies bigger or want more than a light coating of icing  on your cookies you should double the icing recipe.
